Hello everyone.  Simply put, I am looking for a program that is similar to Secure CRT but for a Mac, preferably free. or close to it.

I am just looking for copy/paste functionality.  The ability to telnet/ssh into a cisco pix/router/switch and do some basic administration.

Your help is appreciated!

Mac OS X has ssh and telnet built in!

All you need to do is open up a terminal ( Applications -> Utilities -> Terminal )

And then write either:

ssh <user>@<host>

Or

telnet <host> <port>

Depending on wether you want to connect to ssh or telnet. Copy and Paste works in terminal normally using apple-C and apple-V

If you prefer some kind of a GUI for entering the login and host information, there are several available, this is one (free):
